Yummy Soaps And Other Goodness

Posted by Stitchblade | 3:19 PM Nov 14, 2008

So, I have this online friend FOREVER now. Her name is Carrie and she is one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. She only has one flaw that I have ever noticed and that is her undying love of cats. She is always getting a new cat. She even has some freaky dwarf cat! It's like a wiener dog! If you know me even a little bit, you have probably learned I have a huge FEAR of cats......and wiener cats just push me past my limit......but really, this isn't about me, it's all about Carrie

Tell me about you and your family......
I am a stay at home mom, I have 4 children ranging in age from 3-12. I have been married to my wonderful husband Tom for 8 years. We live on the "Funny Farm" (That's what a lot of people call us) We have around 40 animals. Dogs, Cats, Chickens, Goats, Rabbits - you name it we have taken it in!

What is your store name and link?
My store is Country Cottage Aromas

What do you specialize in?
Well, I started out with Goats Milk soap, then added tarts, and now I am adding my handcrafted items and more.

How did you get started?
I started out because I had tried a bar of Goats Milk Soap and fell in love! I tried to order again and saw that the wahm went out of business. So, I tried someone else - same deal, she went out of business as well. So, I thought to myself "I can do it!"

What do you love about your business?
I love that I am home with my children most of all. I also love making soaps and sewing so I do what I love :-) Working from home gives you the freedom to work when you want like it isn't a 9-5 job!

What is your favorite product right now?
Definitely my Oatmeal Milk & Honey Soap! I LOVE IT!

What makes your shop different?
I think my shop is different because I sell such a wide variety of items and I make them all myself.

What do you love about handcrafts?
I love how every item is unique!

What are some other sites to find out more about you and what you love to create?
??????? No clue!

    everything looks so unique. The name draws me in and I was looking for something on her page with her logo on it... My daughter's name is Isabella and I call her Bella Bug often. I will definitely be visiting her site again and keep it in mind for gifts. This is great!

    This lady rocks! Her prices are reasonable and she makes the cutest soaps. The font and designs she uses on her soaps is super cute.
